Re: Lens dilemma: Multiple Primes vs Standard zoom

If yo have the time to change the lenses to frame your shots , primes are OK .

How many lenses would the 24-70 or 24-105 replace ?

If bokeh is what you want , primes can help , but only in poor light .

How much difference is there with the 85 1.8 at f 8 than the 24-105 at 85 mm and f 8 ?

This is a hobby for me and probably 85 % of shots are between F 5.6 and F 11 .
